Arts organisations from across Plymouth collaborated with Situations to develop The Public Art Plan and Plymouth Principles.

Situations Broaden Horizons with The Plymouth Principles: New Rules for Public Art. Working with artists and organisations from across the city of Plymouth in South West England, Situations have developed The Plymouth Principles – a new set of guiding principles for the commissioning and development of arts in the public realm which form the city’s new public art plan.

Today, Friday 23 September, Plymouth Culture and Plymouth City Council will be launching The Public Art Plan and the Visual Arts Plan, which set out opportunities and visions for art in the city.

Dom Jinks, Director of Plymouth Culture said:

“We are thrilled to be launching these two new arts plans, which light up the paths for Plymouth to explore further. At the launch we will examine city-defining developments on our horizon, such as Mayflower 400 and the opening of the £34m History Centre. We believe that capitalising on invaluable opportunities like these will lead to an explosion of cultural activity, firmly placing Plymouth on the map as a major international cultural arts destination.”

Plymouth Culture and Plymouth City Council will be launching two new, aspirational arts plans for the city at the start of this year’s Plymouth Art Weekender. Which includes the our project Walk, Hands, Eyes (Plymouth), specially commissioned for this years Art Weekender.

Everyone is invited to attend the launch of The Public Art Plan and the Visual Arts Plan at 4pm on Friday 23 September in Lecture Theatre 2, Roland Levinksy Building, Plymouth University. For more information about the launch event, click here.

After the launch, Plymouth Culture invite you to join them for the opening event of the Plymouth Art Weekender, ‘Searching for Genius’ by Turner-Prize winning artist Douglas Gordon at 5pm in the Peninsula Arts Gallery.
